Title

The Parascapular Fasciocutaneous Flap for Release of the Axillary Burn Contracture.

Publication/Presentation Date

9-1-1987

Abstract

Major disturbances of shoulder function secondary to axillary burn contracture require some form of surgical release if conservative therapy has been unsuccessful. Any area large enough to need extensive skin grafts should be considered for reconstruction using a parascapular fasciocutaneous flap. This flap, which may be elevated easily, provides an option for single-stage correction of the deformity without the need for long-term rehabilitation or splinting.
